The actual ones are doing GREAT JOB , but the problem is, the number of submissions doubled, tripled, there’s one item I submitted like 48 hours ago and it’s still pending approval, just imagine how many other themes are in there, by the time it will get accepted, the theme will lose all the exposure. Same thing to Friday, monday nobody accepts anything so on tuesday all the items from friday-monday(4 days) need to be reviewed and approved.

The poor guy from friday will have like no exposure at all. With more revieweres, they could review more than once a day and accept submissions from time to time, like every 6 hours or something.

+1. Items coming in batches of 5-6 are in a grate disadvantage in comparison to those which manage to come out in couples or so. You might see your theme come live for the first time, quite far from the top of the page nowadays.

There are tons of new templates submitted every day, more reviewers means it just goes through quicker. Not more exposure.

Slowly releasing themes will just create a backlog. It’s pointless.

48 hours is nothing for review, it can take up to a week.

This is nothing for the reviewers need to do, or something that more reviewers can fix. This is a UI situation, there is more and more authors so more reviewers will just flood the homepage even quicker.

It needs to be a better way to show new themes, not a quicker way to accept them

When 30 or 40 new themes will be approved within 1-2 hours, can you even compare the 37th with the 2nd one? Obviously not. They were accepted in the same time, but one already goes at the bottom of the list.

That’s life, more reviewers will mean that happens even quicker?

But not all of a sudden. At least we’ll get equal exposure, now it differs, lucky items get more, unlucky items don’t get exposure at all.

+1. Exactly. Each theme will get its 1 hour of fame (in worst case scenarios) but we at least know that things are fairly split.

They all get reviewed individually, and accepted individually? Without envanto changing the way the homepage works it won’t always be fair. You can’t expect themes to be held off until the next day as there will be a massive backlog.

If more than 24 themes are accepted there will be a backlog.

The backlog is exactly the problem FinalDestiny was talking about Ben. Reviews take place somewhere around 3-4AM GMT +0(London time) each time. That means that at around that hour, 4-5-6 new ones come live for each category. Sometimes even more. And when this happens, the 6th one in the list (unless it’s an exceptional item) won’t prolly get half the first page time the first one will. I agree with your op that the UI could be improved, and even perhaps having items from the last 24-48 hours randomly showing up on the top positions on each refresh. I think this way everybody would be a bit more satisfied with the results.

Otherwise, 6 to 6, or at least 12 to 12 hour reviews would be kind of a good idea as FD pointed out.
